Our program is based on the Early Learning Years Framework, WA Kindergarten Curriculum WA Curriculum, the National Quality Standards and the understanding that children learn best through play. They learn about themselves, their environment, people and the world around them. As they play, children learn to solve problems and get along with others. They enhance their creativity and develop leadership skills and healthy personalities. Play develops the skills children need to learn to read and write, and in early childhood it is the best foundation for success in school.
At Hensman Street Elementary, we provide a rich, authentic play based program that focuses on children’s interests. Our School provides a safe and nurturing environment and allows time for children to discover, explore and create. The staff are warm and welcoming and ensure children have a smooth transition from home to school life. We are not risk adverse here at Hensman Street and we can often be found with our shoes off discovering the earth, or yarning around a fire.
